Logitech has several wireless keyboards and they have batteries inside them which help to operate the Bluetooth mechanism by which the input activity takes place.

Hence, if the battery is running out of charge then user needs to replace the battery of those wireless keyboards so as to get the connection going and use the input device in an efficient manner. The obvious reason for this battery going out of charge is that the Bluetooth connection needs continuous power supply and it can also be experienced with our mobile handsets as well. In mobile handsets, if we keep our Bluetooth connection on for a long period of time then its battery runs out of charge within few hours. Likewise, it is seen that the wireless keyboards run out of battery power due to its continuous usage.

The article will appeal better to the readers if written with improvement in English writing skills. The word ‘various' in the first sentence will appear better if changed to ‘several'. The construction ‘…they have a battery inside them which helps…" would look grammatically correct if changed to “… they have batteries inside them which help …". In the fourth sentence, there should be space between ‘connection' and ‘needs'.
The article is otherwise a well written and is very informative. Logitech should have priced the solar keyboard a little low to increase its sales.

Hello Sukhdev Sir,

I have done the corrections as suggested by you. In the fourth sentence there is a space in between 'connection' and 'needs'.

I would like to thank you for reading my article and for suggesting corrections.

Yes, Logitech should lower the price of these futuristic keyboards so that everyone can enjoy typing on a wireless keyboard.

Have a nice day.
